Be a Fundraising Champion

Be a Fundraising Champion

Champions to Stop Diabetes are people who raise $1,000 or more to help the 30 million people living with diabetes every day.

Your fundraising directly supports many programs and research efforts such as; training school personnel to keep children with diabetes safe at school, providing assistance to individuals who are being discriminated against because of their diabetes, providing support and resources to people who are newly diagnosed with type 1 & 2 diabetes, and so much more.

How Can I Become a Champion?

You, too, can join the ranks of this important group of walkers!

  1. If you haven't registered yet, do that first! Simply click REGISTER at the top of the screen.
